RSPCA ACT Inspectors are calling on the public for information regarding an injured dog that was abandoned in Fyshwick on the morning of Monday 29th January 2018.
The female, black and white Border Collie* approximately aged 1 ½ - 2 years was found locked in a cubby house at the Stirato Bakery Café at 9 am. The bakery and other nearby businesses have been fully cooperating with the investigation, and not considered to have prior knowledge of the dog or her owners at this time.
The Border Collie was taken to a veterinary clinic by a concerned member of the public and presented underweight and with suspicious injuries. The Border Collie was then transferred to RSPCA ACT due to the nature of those injuries.
Businesses in the area have provided CCTV footage that shows a car of interest in the early hours of Monday morning at approximately 3.15 - 3.30am when it’s suspected the dog was abandoned.
The vehicle could possibly be a light coloured Mazda BT50 dual cab utility or similar and was seen stopping on Iron Knob Street near the Loading Dock behind DFO, opposite Chemist Warehouse.
